A Writer's Life

I know that I have not been on my blogging schedule.  Life got in the way.  Hospitals, Hospital appointments, home health nurse care.  it is rough being a care giver.  It is hard to find the time to write.

I have been writing.  I have been writing in Long Hand.  I have been writing when I can.  I have no answers on how to tell anyone to find time to write when life gets in the way.

I am going to tell you that it can be done.  For me it has to.  Writing keeps me sane.  Writing keeps me focused.  I go to my lap top and for a few moments, all is write with the world.  I have my characters talking to me.  I can go to another world and escape my world.

Readers read to escape to a new world.  I write to escape my world.

My life changed in the past two months.  I am no longer alone with my characters.  I know have to worry about my other half.  I have to worry that he is okay before I can do anything I want to.  That is okay.  He would do the same for me.

So for those writers out that, and that probably is every writer.  Life will get in the way.  You can still write, might take longer.  My have to write in the car or in waiting rooms.  It can be done.  I am doing it.

My new saying is  IT IS WHAT IT IS 

My life has been turned upside down.  I once had an office and my writing was spread out.  Now I am in my bedroom.  I am now writing on my bed.  My printer is now on my night stand.  I am going with the flow.  IT IS WHAT IT IS.

That way I don't get upset about anything.  I go with the flow.

How are you handling your writing when life gets in the way????

It's a Writer's life   IT IS WHAT IT IS

Marketing Your E-Book


www.amazon.com/dp/B00FE81V3S  E-Book

Writing is easy.  Marketing is hard. Marketing is time consuming.

I am writing and publishing a short story every month.  Some months I publish two a month.  If I am not writing I am marketing.  I am on face book.  I am on twitter.  I blog. 

That may sound simple, but it zaps my writing time.

If you have a spouse or friend that could help you with the social media, you will be ahead of the game.  I do not have that.  I am totally on my own. 

I have a full time job.  I get up early to write or promote my books.  I do what I can do.

There is no secret formula on how to market your book.  If there was, then we all would be doing the same thing.

Be willing to take risks, but watch your money.  Don't go into debt by advertising.  Like publishing your book, it doesn't have to cost you anything.  Like marketing, don't pay anyone to help you, unless you are sure and can afford it.  There is always someone out there to take your money.

The best advice is to get the next book or short story out.  If you are writing a novel, can you write and publish a short story to keep your name out there???

I am selling books every month.  I am recieving royality checks from amazon.  If I can do this so can you.

Marketing Your Book 101

Writing is fun.....Once you hit the publishing button, that is when the real work starts.
Some things you should know, but no one will tell you.

1.  Time is your enemy.  You will never have enough time in the day to do what you want to do.

2.  You will soon realize that you find yourself promoting your book, than writing the next book.

3.  Do you have a face book page???  An author Face Book Page???  A Blog????

4.  What works for one author might not work for another author.

5.  I try to blog everyday or every other day.  If you don't blog regularly, you will lose viewers

6.  I still don't understand facebook, but I know that I have to be on it.  I have friends on facebook and I know that readers are finding me on face book

7.  Need to get your next book out ASAP.

8. If you are not selling books....get the next book out and keep writing,,,, you will. I went 4 months without a sale.  I kept writing.

9.  Summer Slump. I was selling books I was doing great till June-July-August came.  My sales sank..Now I feel I am back at the beginning.  Struggling alone, but now that summer is over...my sales are going back up

10.  Do what works for you.  You need an online presence. You need to get your next book out.

11.  The way I am publishing is publishing a short story a month

www.amazon.com/dp/B00FE81V3S

Publish a short story a month and get your name out.  It is a lot of work, but selling books and getting a royality check makes it worth it

Hungry Zombies Are Here

Published Today!!!

www.amazon.com/dp/B00FOH0X74  Episode 15 Of Me VS Zombies


    I knew that yelling was not the smartest thing to do.  I had the machete raised. I listened for any sound, even the softest sound.  I walked into the living room.  The furniture was tipped over.  My hiking boots were sticking to the carpet.  I looked down at the carpet.  Hard to say what the color was before.  The carpet was now dark red.  Not sure how much blood this carpet soaked up.  I couldn't help to wonder where the bodies were now.  With this much blood, there had to be bodies somewhere. 

The couch was tipped over.  The picture window was splattered in blood.  Any more blood I wouldn't have been able to see out the window.  I walked over and closed the curtains.  I looked at the family pictures on the wall, splattered with blood.  This would have made a great crime scene in a movie.  I heard movement behind the couch.  I stood staring at the back of the couch. 

Read how it all started

Bad Reviews....What To Do About Them

I released a book  How To Write 12 E-Books In One Year


www.amazon.com/dp/B00FE81V3S

I recieved an e-mail from someone who downloaded a sample....She wrote to inform me what was wrong with my idea and writing style.

I deleted the e-mail.  I went on with my business..

No bad review or bad comment will deter me to stop writing.  I am writing and selling books, so I must be doing something right.

So if you get bad reviews or any negative comments on your writing.

Hit the delete button and get on with your business of writing.

Just Write

I have given up on trying to use the social network.  I have decided today that I am going to write and get publish and write the next one. 

Last week I spent over 3 hours on facebook and twitter.  I saw now spike in sales.  I am selling but now as many as I like.  So here is my plan now.

I am going to write.  That is my first priority......then if I have time I will facebook and twitter.

I will still facebook and twitter and blog, but I am not going to waste 3 hours on facebook and twitter again.

I have Episode 15 almost done of Me Versed Zombies  Hungry Zombies

I will do my best to get that published sometime Monday.

I have a full length novel that I need to work on........

So I am just going to write and leave the rest to GOD.
